It’s a myth that all birds fly south for the winter. In fact, some of the more colorful, more vocal birds remain in their local habitats year ’round. Wild Birds Unlimited, the largest franchise system of backyard bird feeding and nature stores, wants to help you attract these beautiful birds to your backyard with two new bird food products and the return of a favorite from last year.
Hoot the Owl, Preston the Penguin, and returning by popular demand, Buttons the Snowman are adorable Bird Food Cylinders that offer a convenient alternative way to feed the birds. These whimsical shapes are a fantastic way to introduce children to the hobby of bird feeding.
“These new foods are a fun new way to connect kids of all ages with nature and to bring song, color and life into your own backyard,” said Jim Carpenter, CEO and Founder of Wild Birds Unlimited. “You can get a glimpse of the vibrancy of spring during the winter months with some of the most beautiful birds, including jays, woodpeckers, cardinals, chickadees, finches, and nuthatches.”
Available only at Wild Birds Unlimited, each is packed with seeds and fruits to attract a wide variety of birds to your backyard. Seeds such as black oil sunflower, peanuts and safflower are high in fats and proteins that birds need to survive long, cold winter nights.
The price point varies by Wild Birds Unlimited store, however it is usually under $20 in U.S. locations. All three stocking stuffers are an inexpensive fun way to feed the birds. Hurry though; these food characters will be available for a limited time.
